I had the same issue with my 03 Murano. after replacing the CPS myself. my mech replaced the battery terminals as the originals would not tighten down to make good contact. so far this has cured the code. wish i new this before replacing the CPS.

Did you replace the correct sensor? Bank one is against the firewall. Also some 02 and 03 Muranos have a recall for the sensors. Ck with a dealer to see if yours is in the vin range.

Yes I did the code denotes which sensor is causing error. after replacing the sensor with a genuine nissan part the code was cleared and remained off for a couple of days then reoccured which is why i took it to a mechanic

guys, I'm going to replace CPS on bank one. Should I just do both? And is there a torque spec for the bolt. I can't seem to find one.

Default Change Cam Position Sensors As a Pair...

Do them both, particularly if experiencing hard starting with the engine WARM. They are known to be problematic and failure-prone so, though expensive, just do them both and be done with it, as I've had to do. You don't HAVE TO do it this way, but my research shows you'll risk fixing one, just to have another go out on you.

Default Location of Camshaft Position Sensors

On the V6, they're located on the transaxle/transmission side of of the cylinder heads. Look for green electrical connectors. You push the tab *IN* w/ one finger/tool while pulling the body outward.

Wink Jes GRAB It ;o)

Just reach in and grab each of them. Once you've removed the electrical connectors, there is a single 10mm bolt that mounts each of them to the cylinder head. Remove that, then jiggle them out. The only "trick" is getting the elec connector off; it's quite counterintuitive!
